Norman M. Covert

Joe Charlebois

Bringing Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl back was the right thing to do, or so says retired USAF Gen. Charles J. Dunlap, Jr. In a op-ed General Dunlap states that “The decision to bring him home — even at the price of freeing enemy detainees — was still the right one, as was yesterday’s decision to task the military justice process with determining his guilt or innocence.”

Scorched Earth and Winchester Hall
Norman M. Covert

I’ve been off line for some time because of medical and other issues, which have nothing to do with old age or clear reasoning. I feel like Dr. Seuss’ and his “Green Eggs and Ham.” I have tasted the Winchester Hall cooking and “...I don’t like it, Sam I am.”
